The Goddess Times

Creating A New World Together

 

 

Welcome to the July Goddess Times, a place of sharing in these transformational times, honouring the earth and the sacred feminine during our journey towards unity. The old ways of separation do not work in the new world and as we move towards inner wholeness we are now coming together both within and without.

Our next Retreat Day is at Cilcain in North Wales on Sunday, July 30th; the title of that day is The Truth of Ascension, please come and join us and spend some time with loving souls in the most beautiful location.

We are holding a special afternoon, at Hooton on the Wirral on Saturday, August 19th, the Shanti Retreat, an afternoon for you to retreat from the world and find some inner peace. This is a new location at Hooton Village Memorial Hall and it is set amongst woods where we can spend some time within the peaceful vibrations of nature.

May you enjoy the bountifulness of nature during this beautiful month of July.

With love,

Margaret and Graham

Namaste

 

 

From Graham....

 

We take what we see for granted in this fast moving "Modern" world about us, but take time out and look around you in more detail and you will see some amazing things.

Next time you go walking through a field, look down into the grass and you may see some tiny wild flowers growing amongst the grasses, all colours and shapes. Take a look close up to a tree and you may see insects, beetles, moths or flies on the bark.

If you are lucky enough to be by a stream or brook, have a look in and see what's about under the surface.

It's all there in life, you just have to search for it. So it's not just the big things, don't forget the little things, they are just as, if not more important in this world and sometimes a lot more interesting.

Messages Of Light

We are not alone as we walk through life; we have many guides who are always there to assist us even if at times it feels like there is no-one present. Our relatives and friends who have passed over watch over us and we also have many great beings of light, saints and wise people who have lived upon this planet and other planets who become our helpers too. There are gods and goddesses who bring their teachings as well and these are archetypes, they are ideas, thought forms and the energies of all of creation and they can become as real as any other guide. There are great beings who have lived upon this planet, they bring in their wisdom and come around us all so never doubt or think that you are not good enough to be helped by such highly evolved Masters.

We all have a team who works with us and some of them are here for the whole of our lives helping us as we are born and waiting for us at the moment of death for you never pass over without someone or even many to help you. If you have ever observed anyone in the process of dying you may have seen them turn and look in a certain direction and smile for the veils become thin at that time and people can see into the light and they can see who has come to help them pass over.

If only we could see who is around us we would know that we need never have any fear for we are always being helped but it takes trust to know that we are surrounded by such love. There are a few who are able to see with the physical eyes these beings of light but for the majority of us, including most mediums, it is a case of sensing who is there and recognising the signs of that person.

In the last couple of days Saint Hildegard has been with me, she was a great female saint, who lived in Germany in the 1100s and in fact she is the most amazing role model for women today who are struggling to find their own power, however she is a wonderful saint for both men and women to call upon. Her knowledge of so many things was vast, she created music and chants, she knew about healing herbs and plants, she even knew about the use of crystals, she would not be out of place in this modern world of ours.

She comes to speak through me to share her words of wisdom with you:

“I come to speak about belief, about self belief for it takes great courage to truly believe in yourself and in the path you have chosen. Many doubt themselves so much and even those who have learnt through much struggle to believe, in their hearts they still do not completely accept what they truly feel.

I ask you now at this time when the world is changing and your lives are changing too to believe in yourself, to believe in the decisions which you make and to believe in the choices upon your path. There is the greatest joy in following your heart for your heart does know what it wants but as soon as you doubt just a little that doubt will grow and then you end up in confusion not knowing which way to go.

To have true self belief is one of the most wonderful things for how can you go the wrong way if you are doing what your soul wishes for you and this is what belief really means it is a true connection to your soul where you follow its dictates. Problems occur in life as teachings to let us know that we may need to look at ourselves and to heal ourselves but also to stop us from going the wrong way or in a way which is not in our best interests. When the wisdom of the soul is fully present then your life flows like a River and this is why you have come back into this incarnation to fulfil the work set by you from your own higher being.

I ask you to practice daily following your intuition even in very small things for it is by believing in the small things that you come to have full trust in the large things. How many times have you said, I knew I should have done things that way or I knew I shouldn’t have done that for we do know but it is only doubt which gets in the way. Every one of you reading this does know, you know what is right for you and you do know which way to go; trust in your heart and it will never let you down, never.

Believe in your dreams and believe in yourself and give to yourself the things which you know are best for you, don’t listen to others for how can they know as well as you do what you really need.

It is the most wonderful thing when you can honestly say, that is for me and that is what I am going to do and you feel strong and empowered and it is because your belief system is working very well.

I come to spread my light around many of you and you will feel this as my presence becomes stronger for I not only bring you a greater sense of belief in yourself I also encourage you to use all the things which you have to hand to help you live a healthy and harmonious life. Bring in music when ever you can for it heals in a way you can never even begin to imagine and it lifts the spirits which is a very precious thing.

Turn to the healing herbs and use them, use them freely in your food and turn to them as remedies to help you with your ailments for they contain great power within them, they are the gifts from mother Earth.

I spent my life understanding the ways to heal and how to create harmony and also how to speak my truth and I bring all of these gifts to you but I also spent time in deep inner contemplation and I ask that you remember to do this too for a few quiet moments can make a difference to each day. This can take any form you wish, it can be a favourite prayer or just a few moments spent visualising yourself in a beautiful place for both of these things will bring calmness to your mind and to your body. If your mind is calm your body will be too.

There is so much magic to be found in the little things of life, a sprinkling of herbs in the dish which you cook, a favourite song to listen to, a few quiet moments of reflection seeing yourself in a tranquil place.

I come now to spend time with you and even though my last incarnation was a long time ago in a life so different to this modern age my understanding of life is still the same and the things which people need are no different today as they were then. Imagine how your life would be if you believed in yourself with every single action, your life would then be just as you wished it for you would be following the dictates of your heart and when you follow your heart you are living in harmony with your true self and what more could you ask for than to find peace and union between the head and the heart”.

It can be begun at 4 dates during the year and those who enrol must be able to participate in the closed facebook group, The Enchanted Castle, which has been set up specifically for this course.

This is a course of deep personal healing as well as providing mystical and magical teachings; it includes also ceremonial and past life work.

Here is the link to information about the training:

Flower Of The Month

Flowers belong to another realm; they are the healers of the soul. Their cosmic blueprints are within the worlds of spirit. Each month I bring to you a flower which is relevant to the energies around us at the time. The flower for this month is a white marjoram flower. The flowers of the herb marjoram can come in pink or white and they are both glorious, they seed everywhere and there is nothing nicer than seeing an abundance of them in the summertime.

The colour of a flower is important and the pink brings love while the white brings a greater understanding of all of existence with the knowledge that we are not separate. White is the colour of God/goddess, it is the colour of unity.

This most beautiful of herbs is known as joy of the mountains so let it bring you joy when you need it and let it bring you the understanding that you are connected to everything. A dear friend of mine calls me Marji because of my name Margaret but she also knows that this is to do with the herb marjoram.

I often give flowers to people, flowers from my garden, I love to do this but some times I will include a sprig of marjoram just to let that person know that I am giving them a bit of myself and that they can rely on me if they need me and so I share this white marjoram with you and let you know that I share a bit of myself with you too. With this herb I give to you I also give you love from my heart.

 

 

Magdalene Priestess Training

This is an 8 part series of downloadable audio workshops to be completed during each turning of the wheel of the year. I have set up a closed facebook group, Magdalene Priestesses, where you are to share your experiences of the teachings with me and with the others who participate. You will be given guidance and feedback there; you will also have the support of other trainee priestesses. At the completion of the year long course following the writing of a short essay you will be able to call yourself a Magdalene Priestess and set up your own circle if you wish. This course will enable you to awaken to the lives you have lived as a priestess. Mary Magdalene was a Nazarene Priestess and she along with other cosmic teachers will provide the knowledge for this training. You can begin at any time of the year.

The cost is £40 for each of the 8 parts.

As we have had enquiries from people who would like to do this course alone for their own personal healing and education without participating in the Facebook group we are now offering it as a self-study course also. There will be no initiation or certificate at the end of it; the cost for each of these workshops is £20.

 A CD version is available for UK by post, details on download page.

Mystic Journeys

We all need respite from the world, time away to sit and find some inner peace for the mind is always active and it is one of the hardest things to do to quieten it. To spend a few minutes each day in quiet contemplation visualising a beautiful place to be can indeed make a difference to your day. Any inner journey will help you to achieve some peace no matter where it is but there are many places you can visit in the mind, many beautiful places which will fill you with the essence of the land and recharge your batteries.

Come with me now deep inside where you have the potential to manifest all sorts of journeys within the mind and I will take you to a place of peace.

Come and sit in the garden of an abbey, the garden is filled with healing herbs and beautiful flowers. Your seat is an old carved wooden bench and just by you is a very old rose called Rosa Mundi, the meaning of its name is rose of the world. Its colour is a mixture of white and pink and it has the most glorious perfume.

As you sit within this place of peace inhaling the herbs and the beautiful rose next to you there comes a sound from the Abbey of monks chanting, such glorious chanting, it fills you with its healing tones. There is nothing for you to think about here, no problems to work out, no thoughts of things which you need to do only a quiet emptiness of peace. As you sit there the emanations from the herbs, the rose and the sounds fill you completely and you feel your whole self become very quiet and still within, it is as though the world has stopped and indeed it has for you are here in a moment of time held within the healing vibrations of an inner journey of peace.
